The Picasso Birthplace Museum was born under the name of the Pablo Ruiz Picasso Foundation. The artist’s birthplace is located at 15 Plaza de la Merced in Malaga. A location that was declared Historical-Artistic Monument of National Interest on March 25, 1983.
At first the Picasso Birthplace Museum was limited to the first floor of the building, but the building underwent a rehabilitation. It was here that its first ten years of life and a few years of adulthood passed.
The influence of his hometown, however, was deep and persistent in his memories, in his personality and in his works.
